    If you do use them, you better be accurate
    Removed a hazard tree for the city today. It was about a 90’ tulip poplar. Easy climb. Only had to rig one top, the rest could fly.

    Sorry there’s no before or during pics. I was in a mood to match our foul weather. That was mama coon. Three babies vacated shortly after I bucked the log

    BOOM!
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    At least the coon didn't jump on your face during the climb.

    We get lots of huge silver maples here too, and cottonwoods. They're just fast growers, plus cotton woods have thick bark.

    Thanks Rajan, i felt it was one of my better ones That's a gigantic willow there! Fortunately i didn't climb it, had planned to in order to saw some lean into it, but once i started figuring on the weights of everything i determined it was pretty balanced and pulling it would be enough. Biggest tree I've taken whole by property, not gonna lie when it started to go once i got it cut up (i had tensioned up but figured i would have to pull it over) i felt pretty good. Had a big hollow right above the hinge, so i was also pretty happy when i got nothing but clean chips cutting the face. Not too bad for a fitter

    Excellent !
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
